I know you can pulldata using coordinates into geopoint. Wondering if you can select_one address and copy it into the geosearch widget/geopoint and if so how (tried to look into reverse geocoding).

I want to be able to go directly to an address and then move the point to a more precise location (ie. structure/building).

Hi Aldous,

Currently, you cannot pass a street address to be geocoded into the geopoint.  I would recommend instead having the location stored either in a CSV file and use pulldata() to calculate the point or store the coordinate as the name of the choice list and use string manipulation to calculate the location (as seen in https://community.esri.com/groups/survey123/blog/2016/06/08/calculations-on-geopoints ).

Example would be: enter an address via text question, pulldata of address into geopoint (don't know what that syntax is, possibly: pulldata('Address','Street','AddrKey',address entered) or are we just limited to the properties list in Geopoints ? Ismael ChiviteJames Tedrick

Thanks, yeah I wasn't sure if it was possible or not. The addresses are stored in a CSV but no coordinates (over 1,000 addresses using external_choices). I've done surveys with coordinates as recommend, appreciate your response.
